    Re: I bought a TJ

    I managed to replace all of my control arm bushings. I think Trent was the one who warned me about the ones on the front axle. Those were a bear. I had to cut the front lowers off with a...

    You're right. Their regular prices are not that great. Amazon has a better price on that Milwaukee impact right now.

    Re: Camper Van

    I think the chevy express AWD vans are mostly V8 1500's. There may have been a handful of years where they put that system in a 2500 but they are rare. I'm not sure if the 4.3 was offered with...

    It's funny that you cite www.buytwowayradios.com as I was going to suggest that as a resource. All of the rules around FRS and GMRS seem to be way more confusing than they should be, but...
